DB2 FP4 or FP5


Stefan Stern (406128) | asked Jan 26 '10, 4:53 a.m.
Hello

We run a DB2 WSE 9.5 on FP3. Unfortunately, the automatic memory
management is buggy and tries to parametrize more memory than the system
currently has. This bug was fixed with FP4. Latest FP is FP5.

The supported DB2 editions specify DB2 9.5 with FP3a. Is this a
"minimum" fixpack level or is it an "exactly" fixpack level?

Kind regards,
Stefan Stern

Hello Stefan,
I would say DB2 9.5 FP3a is the minimum required level.
So FP5 should be OK.

Thanks.
Eric.

Yes this should be no problem. Our teams have been self-hosting against FP4 for some time and we are moving to FP5 this week.
